Today, a triptych.
I read this item, which said: “Chinese Girl, also called The Green Lady print by Vladimir Tretchikoff and yet, it is said to be the most reproduced print in the world. After the original sold at auction in March for a record $1.5 million, CNN spoke to Tretchikoff’s biographer, Boris Gorelik, who says “the picture was ‘one of the most important pop culture icons’ of the mid-20th century.” Other reports claim that the artist sold over 500,000 prints of Chinese Girl during his life and was the most popular prints of the sixties and seventies. If you look closely, you might even see the print in episodes of Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Dr. Who.”
While searching “The Green Lady” resulted in images of the mentioned work, searching “Chinese Girl,” rather predictably, did not. However, one of Google’s suggested related searches included “Chinese Girl Vladimir Tretchikoff.” All three search results are thus included here.
